Recuperation And Healing

After an upper arm lift, the upper arms are wrapped or placed in an elastic sleeve to reduce swelling. Sutures are usually removed in the first 2 to 3 weeks. Bruising and swelling gradually disappear over 3 to 4 weeks. All swelling is gone in 3 to 6 months.

Insurance Guidelines

An upper arm lift is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance. The patient is responsible for payment.
